  Tired of boring old wines from Australia? No? Then you can probably thank Penfolds Wines. Penfolds, founded in 1844 by Mary and Dr. Penfold (Mary gets top billing since she took care of most of the early management and winemaking responsibilities), has completely revolutionized not only its own product lines throughout the years, but also many wines in Australia as a whole. The wine produced by Penfolds was originally prescribed as tonic wines for anaemic patients, with the wine made from Grenache. By 1870, with 60 acres under vine, they were producing many more wines. In the 1920s and 1930s, Penfolds was known for its fortified wine, like many other wineries in the area. 1943 marked the start of a massive expansion for Penfolds Winery, with first the acquisition of Auldana Vineyard and its winery, and then the purchase of Kalimna Vineyard in 1945. By the end of the decade, they owned vineyards in McLaren Vale, Griffith, the Hunter Valley, and Minchinbury. Around the same time, winemaker Max Schubert returned from oversees with a completely new vision for the future of the winery. In the 50s, he started experimenting with the red wine he called Grange, which is a mix of primarily Shiraz and a little Cabernet Sauvignon, and by the 1960s the wine had spread across the Australian wine industry. Not wanting to stop with merely one of the most successful wine projects in the history of Australia, Penfolds Wines started the “White Grange” project in the 1990s, leading to the immensely popular and publicized release of the Penfolds Yattarna Chardonnay. Peter Gago became their Chief Winemaker in 2002, and he, along with three winemakers in charge of red wine and one in charge of white, continue the tradition of experimentation and evolution.

Tasting NotesWine Tasting NotesRadiant, deep, dark red. There is no second guessing the variety here - pure Cabernet fruit aromas abound! Notes of beetroot, capsicum and blackcurrant leap from the glass, and with air, sarsaparilla. Oak is barely perceptible, yet sits confidently in the background. Firm, complex and ripe, Cabernet fruits are framed and complexed by notes of soy and freshly tanned leather. The 2005 Bin 407 is a balanced wine with a substantial mid-palate - impressively so for a 100% Cabernet offering. Interwoven French and American oak artefacts of vanillin, cedar and lemon complete the offering.

This is one of Australia's top 10 wines. Ripe, intense-flavoured fruit fermented and matured in new American oak for 15 months. Opulent, flamboyant wine with definitive varietal characters: exaggerated blueberry/blackberry and cranberry fruit.

Firm in texture with an intriguing blueberry note singing a solo against a chorus of bay leaf green olive and spice flavors. Needs time or a juicy chunk of meat to soften the tannins. Best from 2010 through 2014. 8 000 cases imported. HS Wine Spectator.
